Pete Jacobs Wartime Radio Revue at the Cicada Club in Downtown LA

03/02/2018 7:00 pm

Interspersing the hits of the Thirties and Forties, along with late-breaking news stories from the war years, as well as several original songs, and 1940-style radio commercials, listening to this band is like taking a time-machine back to a World War Two U.S.O. show.

With their three young female vocalists, a hot, driving rhythm section, and eight-piece horn section, the "classic-swing" sound is both full and authentic! Add in their "Armed Forces" style khaki-colored uniforms, it's all there!
